The TUF series delivers a "tough" image. With the unique design & high quality components (military-standard), TUF series is born for pursuing the preeminent stability, all-round compatibility, and extreme durability.

CeraM!X - Heatsink Coating Tech. 50% Larger area for heat dissipation with the revolutionary ceramics-coating technology

Innovative ceramics effectively conducts heat away from the system. It replaces traditional anti-oxidant to dissipate heat better with its microscopic irregular surface and enlarged area. Better cooling leads to overall improvement in system stability.

TUF Thermal Radar: Real Time Temp Detection and Heat Removal

The TUF Thermal Radar monitors temps in critical parts of the motherboard in real time, automatically adjusting fan speeds to make sure the system maintains high stability without overheating. It consists of multiple sensors for various components on the motherboard, giving users the ability to monitor each area, while increasing options for fan control housed inside the chassis. The Thermal Radar automatically calculates ideal fan speeds based on different parameters selected by users for each component, keeping everything cooler and longer lasting.

New DIGI+ Power Control: Leading digital power control solution with the best quality

New DIGI+ Power Control includes multiple digital voltage controllers, allowing ultra-precise modulation and tuning for both the CPU and DRAM. This innovative and industry-leading ASUS technology provides extremely accurate voltage tuning for better efficiency, stability and performance.

UEFI BIOS: Flexible and Easy BIOS Interface

ASUS UEFI BIOS offers a user-friendly interface that goes beyond traditional keyboard-only BIOS controls to enable more flexible and convenient mouse input. Users can easily navigate the UEFI BIOS with the smoothness of their operating system. Quick and simple overclocking and setup sharing is facilitated by the F12 hotkey BIOS snapshot feature. The exclusive EZ Mode displays frequently-accessed setup info, while the Advanced Mode is for experienced performance enthusiasts that demand far more intricate system control, including detailed DRAM information.

TUF Components (Alloy Choke, Cap. & MOSFET; Certified by Military-standard): Certified for Tough Duty

Get rugged performance even in the most challenging conditions with robust TUF chokes, solid capacitors, and MOSFETs--certified through third-party, military-grade testing. TUF Chokes, also known as the "Alloy Choke", is a made of a compound of various types of metal instead standard iron, enables the support of up to a massive 40A of rated current, 25% higher than conventional component. Furthermore, the single piece packaing also elimates the emission of virbation noise, delivering superb charactoristics as well as durability under extreme conditions.

E.S.P. Efficient Switching Power Design: Optimal power efficiency for key components

Exclusively for this motherboard, the switching power design is provided not only for the CPU and memory, but also for other key components such as graphics cards, LAN and USB 3.0. E.S.P. dramatically improves system efficiency and reduces heat generation.

Great board!

The board itself is well built, sturdy and all round a good buy. This board is full sized and as such will *NOT* and most likely NEVER fit inside a small case. If you have a big case with HDD's located at the bottom, you should be okay. Due to the SATA ports being sideways, it can be a bit tricky getting everything plugged in (I recommend using SATA cables with both ends straight- not L shaped)- the board came with 4 black SATA 3 (6 gb/s) cables too. When installing the front panel bits (power switch, reset switch etc), there's a white bit of plastic with prongs and clear labels- you can either put your front panel pieces on this, which then plugs more easily into the board, or directly onto the board prongs. The board also comes with an NVidia SLI cable, a bronze bit for something, a big sticker, TUF certificate, and a bootable CD with software. Recommended? YES!
